Way back in early January, I organized a quick trip to New Orleans for my birthday. I’d been wanting to re-visit NOLA for awhile and experience some more of the food, music, and atmosphere of the French Quarter. After a quick wedding trip a few years ago, I’ve had it on my travel wish list to go back. My birthday was a great excuse, and I managed to round up Curtis, my brother, and Tyler, a good friend, to come along with–even though it was right after the holidays. That’s the problem with an early January birthday… everyone is usually travel and spent out to be interested in doing something out of the ordinary.
The weekend went off great. We found some amazing food, cigars, coffee, beer, and music… exactly as I’d hoped. All within the French Quarter and no car required. As a bonus, the weather was brilliant. I left loving New Orleans even more than I had before, and can’t wait to go back to explore more.
Oh, and I also got myself a snazzy new hat.
